Before and after care waxing instructions:

  • Please allow 2 or more weeks of hair growth before your visit.

  • Arrive at your appointment freshly showered.

  • Do not apply self-tanner, moisturizer, or any abrasive body or facial scrubs.

  • We recommend wearing loose-fitting clothes to your appointment, especially for services in the bikini area.

  • Try to limit caffeine intake as it can stimulate the nervous system.

  • Avoid taking pain medications, like Advil or Tylenol, as it can lead to adverse reactions including, but not limited to, thinning of the skin,
    dehydration, and bruising.

  • For services in the bikini area, attempt to schedule your appointment within the first 2 weeks after your cycle has ended (this is the time that
    you are less sensitive.) However, you can receive a service during your cycle, if you can wear a tampon; just anticipate additional sensitivity.

  • Certain products and medications can prevent us from providing hair removal services. These products include, but are not limited to: Accutane, Retin-A, Glycolic Acid, Alpha Hydroxyl Acid, Taxorac Avage, Differin, Strivectin, Renova, Proactiv, Avita, Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid.


  • Attempt to not sweat in the area where hair was removed.

  • Continue to wear loose-fitting clothing. After a service in the bikini area specifically, do not wear underwear, if possible.

  • Do not take hot showers or soak in a bath.

  • Do not use lotions, oils, exfoliates, perfumes, or deodorants, unless approved by your Wax Artist.

  • Do not go swimming (pools, lakes, oceans, hot tubs, etc.)


  • Avoid picking, plucking, and /or tweezing in between appointments. This can cause hair breakage resulting in stubble.

  • 24-48 hours after your service, moisturize your skin daily with a light oil (i.e. olive oil, coconut oil, or sunflower oil).

  • **We also offer an Anti-Ingrown Scrub in store which helps to prevent in-grown hair. This also has AHA’s (Alpha Hyaluronic Acids which helps keep the skin toned and smooth in between services. 48-72 hours after service, begin to exfoliate your skin 3-5 times per week with a sugar or salt scrub.

  • **We offer sugar scrubs here at It's A Garden Life Wellness & Spa, LLC.**

  • Coffee scrub: helps to reduce inflammation and radiates the skin.

  • It's A Garden Life Wellness & Spa, LLC  also offers natural and organic soaps as well as a variety of essential oils to help with skin maintenance.

  • Be sure to wear cotton, natural, or organic fabrics around the area where hair was removed, if possible.
